the District itself commissioned a report which --surprise, surprise — says there is no evidence of spying on students through their district-issued laptops.

Commissioning this study and accompanying press release allowed the Lower Merion School District to control how the story was reported around the world, such as in the southeast US (http://www.ajc.com/news/nation-world/report-no-spying-in-516408.html), in the northwest (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2011771557_apuslaptopsspyingonstudents.html), on the broadcast television news (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/05/03/ap/national/main6457636.shtml?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+CBSNewsTravelGuru+%28Travel+Guru%3A+CBSNews.com%29) ,in the United Kingdom (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/feedarticle/9059968) and even in the blogosphere (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/20100503/us-laptops-spying-on-students/)."
